GALERIE PATRICK SEGUIN

Jean Prouvé

Edited with text by Patrick Seguin. Text by Catherine Prouvé, Renzo Piano, Raymond Guidot, Jean Nouvel, Catherine Coley.

Visiteur Métropole FV 12 armchairs and Guéridon bas, photographed in a private collection, are reproduced from 'Jean Prouvé.'This exquisitely produced and comprehensive slipcased publication, edited by Paris’ Galerie Patrick Seguin, is a new and enlarged edition of the original two-volume Jean Prouvé monograph that was published in 2007 to fill a hole in the previously existing scholarship, most of which had focused on Prouvé’s architecture. Featuring a redesigned cover and graphics, it adds presentations of each house exhibited by Galerie Patrick Seguin (with archival images, plans and contemporary photos); an expanded selection of private international collections with photography of Prouvé furniture; and a catalog of Prouvé exhibitions organized by Galerie Patrick Seguin from 1990 to 2016.
Also included (from the original edition) are a collection of interviews with collectors and design professionals; a detailed biography of Prouvé by his daughter, Catherine Prouvé; and essays by design historian Raymond Guidot and architecture historian Catherine Coley.
Today the oeuvre of Prouvé is considered essential to the history of 20th-century design. Prouvé’s furniture designs were determined by the interior spaces the pieces would inhabit, and they were developed in tandem with the modernist principles of the “art of living” and “harmonious habitat” that were so characteristic of the time. This volume celebrates the unity of his brilliant vision.

Though lacking any formal education in architecture, Jean Prouvé (1901-84) became one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, boldly experimenting with new building designs, materials and methods. “His postwar work has left its mark everywhere,” wrote Le Corbusier, “decisively.”

Economic, elegant and functional: Jean Prouvé

Economic, elegant and functional: Jean Prouvé

Reproduced from Galerie Patrick Seguin's magnificent new slipcased, two-volume Jean Prouvé overview, this contemporary photograph captures a sub-section of the architect/designer's groundbreaking 1957 Villejuif temporary school as installed in Le Muy, Var, in 2015. "Economic but elegant and functional at the same time, the 'temporary' school in Villejuif is in fact a masterly demonstration of mass-production of permanent structures. Even if government departments failed to follow up on these ideas, the later recycling of Villejuif components and the presence of a grid bay from the school in major national museums have ensured the project a place in the history of 20th-century architecture." continue to blog

"Prouvé's attitude was to prove that through simplicity the problem could be solved."

Design lovers, take note. It's not often that we get a book that is this big and this beautiful. New from Galerie Patrick Seguin, this 764-page, two-volume slipcased edition expands the gallery's previous Prouvé overview (long out-of-print) by more than 100 pages, and features well over 1,500 gorgeous, archival and contemporary color and black-and-white images. Pictured here is Prouvé's elegant yet totally unpretentious 1950 demountable wooden chair no. 301 with steel brace. Designed in 1947, this "do it yourself chair" addressed a shortage of metal, as well as the rapid expansion of the private home market, in post-war France. It's an excellent example of what noted architect, designer and essayist Jean Nouvel calls Prouvé's "attitude" towards proving "that through simplicity the problem could be fully resolved." continue to blog
